a a The Steelers released 15 players today, reducing their roster to the league-mandated 75 players prior to today’s 4 p.m. deadline.

The 15 players released include linebacker Ryan Baker, defensive tackle Mike Blanc, wide receiver Paul Cox, cornerback Andre Freeman, kicker Daniel Hrapmann, linebacker Mortty Ivy (Waived/Injured List), offensive lineman Kyle Jolly, long snapper Matt Katula, tight end Jamie McCoy, cornerback Walter McFadden, tight end Justin Peelle, safety Myron Rolle, wide receiver Juamorris Stewart, defensive tackle Kade Weston and wide receiver Jimmy Young.

The Steelers host the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams. Pittsburgh must reduce its roster to 53 players by Friday at 9 p.m.

welp, guess that means Sushi is our kicker.

In other news, watching NFLN right now and they said Vince Young expected to be released today by the Bills. He just can't find that DreamTeam!!

I'm really hoping that Robert Golden makes the 53. I think he can be the heir to Ryan Clark and learn from RC25 while he is here.

Good. Young's a supreme jerk, an arrogant individual that doesn't deserve to play in this league.

So the rookie goes 5 for 5 including a game winner and they cut him in the first round of cuts...what was the point? I wonder if there was anything he could have done to earn a spot in the first place. Hopefully someone gives him a chance.

Colts & BA will pick him up. We all know BA's offense is nothing without a good reliable kicker.

From what I've seen he has superb physical skills and throws a great pass. His situation is entirely due to his mental attitude. How many guys have we seen like that?

If only we could combine his skills with Tebow's mentality and attitude we'd have a pretty darned good qb.

NO IDEA why you cut Hrapmann in the1st round of cuts. Suisham sucks and the kid showed promise. Makes no sense. He will catch on somewhere and Suisham will cost us a game this year. Damn it.
